alsa not working on Intel 865 (Asus P4P800)


I've installed alsa on Debian unstable and I get no sound output. I am
using a custom 2.6.8 kernel built using kernel-package. I installed
alsa using the alsa-source package. All my tests indicate that alsa is
installed correctly using the intel8x0 driver. I can run alsamixer
without problems. I have unmuted the Master and PCM channels and set
them to 100%. I have just one entry in my /proc/asound/cards file. I
have tried plugging my headphones into all three jacks on my
motherboard (Line In, Line Out, Mic). I have set my libao.conf to
point to alsa.

The only thing I see which is suspicious is all my modules
configuration is in modules.conf, not modprobe.conf. Is that normal
for a 2.6 system?

When I run mpg123 on an mp3, it gives the following, apparently normal, output:

jdpearce@syed:~/Desktop/Music$ music123 richards_soundcheck.mp3
High Performance MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 Audio Player for Layer 1, 2, and 3.
Version 0.59q (2002/03/23). Written and copyrights by Joe Drew.
Uses code from various people. See 'README' for more!
Title  :                                 Artist:

Playing MPEG stream from richards_soundcheck.mp3 ...
MPEG 1.0 layer III, 160 kbit/s, 44100 Hz stereo

However, mpg123 fails to return after one minute, fifty seconds (which
is the length of the mp3). In fact, mpg123 fails to return at all. I
have to CTL+C it.

When I run Rhythmbox on the mp3, it generates the following error:

Could not create audio output element; check your settings

I probably don't have GNOME sound set up correctly.

When I run xmms on the mp3, it doesn't generate an error, but the song
progress bar fails to proceed. The timer does not count up, and xmms
seems to lock after I press the play button again. I have to kill it.

Does anyone have any insight into what's going on? I've pasted a dump
of my configuration (using the aadebug script) onto the bottom of this
